DCL Matty B 3 Modality Challenge
As a Veteran, I know first hand the toll war and military life takes on every veteran of war. As a CrossFit gym owner and coach I know how much fitness can alleviate the mental pain of war. And as someone who has been saved by his rescue dog I know how much a dog can bring happiness and relief into everyone's life. I am raising money for this cause because I believe that service dogs can cure what medicine can't. We have become accustomed to throw medicine at every problem and even though it can help, it should not be the only solution. Service dogs can provide what medicine cannot which is a bond between owner and best friend. Help me raise money for this cause and hopefully save a veterans's life as well as provide shelter dogs a home.
My goal is to complete a 3 modality challenge by completing 3 workouts the week of February 21st:
Front squat 300# which will be a 10# personal record
Complete 30 Muscle Ups for time in under 5 minutes which is a 14 second personal record
Complete a 10K in under 55 minutes which will be a 4 minute and 27 second personal record.
Determined to end veteran suicide, K9s For Warriors provides highly-trained Service Dogs to military veterans suffering from PTSD, traumatic brain injury and/or military sexual trauma. With the majority of dogs coming from high-kill rescue shelters, this innovative program allows the K9/Warrior team to build an unwavering bond that facilitates their collective healing and recovery.
